SkRossi Reflects on His Performance Against Vitality at VCT LOCK//IN
Far from his best, but nothing short of an applause.
Global Esports made its international Valorant debut against Team Vitality yesterday on 23rd February at the VCT 2023: LOCK//IN São Paulo. The team was eliminated from the tournament following a '2-1' defeat but the performance was enough to prove that the players have potential to go big in the near future.
Ganesh "SkRossi" Gangadhar also created history by becoming the first player from India to compete in an international Valorant tournament. He might not have delivered his absolute best, but the performance on Pearl was really solid, especially the quad-kill to close out the series.
During the post match conference, SkRossi reflected on his overall performance against Vitality and admitted that this was not a good performance from his side, "I think in this game I was only able to show like 40% of my potential. I know I can do so much better."

"I know I can do so much better. It just comes with experience and more games at the big stages. I don't think this was a really good performance, I could have done much better is what I feel," said SkRossi, during the official post match conference, "I have the potential, I know it. It is just a matter of time that it comes out and it is not over yet, it is only over when I give up, till then it is never over."
